Dancing and Lynn McWhorter are a perfect match – not just Almost Perfect, the title of her first novel. When Lynn’s optimistic energy takes you in its arms, you are swept into a spirited, memorable adventure of clever conversation, humor and insight.
Born to a petite bronze-skinned mother with the grace of a dancer and a father who taught her that money is something you spend and laughter is something you need, Lynn has always embraced the best of both.
Early on, she pursued acting, poetry, and two Master’s degrees in literature and Marriage and Family Therapy. For her 50th birthday, Lynn’s father presented her with a printed book containing every poem she had ever written, and then gave 200 copies to family and friends. Before Almost Perfect, it was Lynn’s only published work and is the sweetest gift she’s ever received.
At 53, Lynn turned to ballroom dancing and fell in love—with the tango, waltz and foxtrot. She also stumbled upon Conversations With God by Neale Donald Walsch. Impressed and inspired, she began writing her own letters to God. Four hundred pages later, Lynn met her writing coach Max, who suggested turning her letters into the theme for a novel. Almost Perfect was born.
Although Lynn loves to dance and write, the true light of her life is her family. Her daughter and son applaud every dance and read every word she writes. She watches with humility and awe as they raise their children with love and laughter—just like Lynn’s parents raised her.
